Rhinoplasty or nose surgery, sometimes referred to as “nose reshaping” or a “nose job,” improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.
The septum is the membrane between the nostrils, which consists of a hard bone toward the back and flexible cartilage toward the front. When the cartilage is crooked, it is known as a deviated septum. A deviated septum can prevent normal flow of air through the nose, making it harder to breathe and take part in physical activities. Recommended for individuals with sinusitis, post-nasal drip, sleep apnea, and snoring, the procedure allows for easier breathing.
